Default TLC123- The Unexpected....

There is a great redecorating show on HGTV called Room by Room. One of the features every episode is what they call "The Unexpected".....some accessory that is a little different, maybe even a little weird, but something that nevertheless really works in the newly redecorated room.

So...this week, your job is find that "unexpected" embellishment!

Here are a few samples to get some ideas flowing:

Qtip Q-T-Pie by me

The two projects that inspired this challenge were designed by my friend Theresa Marie. She has the most wonderful stamp camps! These two projects were from her latest camp.

Bon Appetit

Bomb Pop


Please use keyword TLC123 when you upload!

Have FUN with this one!

Gonna have to think about this one for a while. Fortunately, I have all day to think -- won't be able to do anything until after work. Thanks for the challenge, Beth.

Sorry - I cheated a little today - we're at Lake George, NY vacationing but I still wanted to play and my toys are at home - I did this card a couple of weeks ago but I thought it might put some ideas out there - TFL!

Wow, what a great "think outside the box" challenge. It's only been an hour and already there's some awesome ideas! It may take me a bit more time...

Wow, Beth, thanks! I love challenges like this. I keep a stash of "found items" that can be used in unique ways--the problem is they take more thinking to use, so don't get used as often as they should. Thanks for the push!
